Remembrance Day is an important time to acknowledge and reflect on the sacrifices our veterans have made to serve and protect our country.
Many soldiers come home with life-changing injuries– hearing loss and tinnitus are commonly reported amongst them. According to Veteran Affairs, almost one third of soldiers have chronic hearing problems by the time they retire.
Due to the stigma around hearing loss and invisibility of the disability, many veteran’s hearing health issues go untreated.
If you or a loved one have served and are experiencing hearing health challenges, there is support available.
Veteran Affairs offers compensation, treatment benefits for hearing aids and services, and coverage for health-related travel expenses. Click here to explore your options.
The Canadian Hard of Hearing Association (CHHA) is here to help as well. Whether through our Mentorship Program or educational resources, CHHA is devoted to helping vets and military members get the hearing health support they need.
